It's officially done.




I will say that one of the (many) things that led to the ultimate turnaround of my trading was learning how to have my good winning days be multiples of my daily loss limit days. For a long, long time I struggled with how to practically accomplish this. I knew theoretically how to do it, but I had to learn how to carry it out.

With winning days being multiples of my daily loss limit days, I was "free'd up" to mentally say "IT'S OK" to have the daily loss limit days, and ACCEPT THEM WHEN THEY DO COME. Up until that point, I was never never ok with a daily loss limit day, because deep down I knew that it would wipe out 2 days or a week of winnings. I could not accept those days as they were happening, which led to an entire worse bag of behaviors. In a nutshell, I had to re-wire myself to learn how to be a good loser. Not much good in any performance activity can come if you have not first learned how to be a good loser.

Good stuff right there.

I just saw this -- congratulations!

This is very good work, and I'm happy that you've nailed it so well.

Good job..well done!
What you say above is SOOO important.
1 good day / 1 bad day.. The good days HAVE to be so much better than the bad days.
That's my target too.
Head down going forward

Thought I would post an update for LTP so far.

Started on Friday, August 8th with a small winning day. Monday and Tuesday of the next week put me down $1k which is at the weekly loss limit for LTP, so I proceeded to destroy the market which gave range extension on sim for the rest of the week...

Last week (8/18 - 8/22) I was on vacation and limited my trading to a couple hours in the morning. I was profitable all 5 days, but it was very limited as I had the direction right for the day, but didn't stick around to let the range extension pay me.

Looking forward to this week.

$1,500 is the profit target. I have to trade a minimum of 10 days (but have 2 months if I need it to hit target). Would be nice to finish it off this week and get funded. No rush though, one trade at a time.

Flat-to-flat stats so far for LTP. They should be better than this.
